NVIDIA surprised us all with the launch of the new, new TITAN Xp - and the new $1200 graphics card has already been picked up by a Reddit user, and benchmarked.
The new TITAN Xp is fast - super-fast, with 3DMark Fire Strike (the 1080p run) providing a score of 31,956 - up from the 28,000 or so that MSI's overclocked GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X 11G graphics card. The new TITAN Xp is around 11% faster than the GTX 1080 Ti, which costs $699 - so you're paying $500 more for 11%, which doesn't seem worth it at all.
I don't really know why NVIDIA released the new TITAN Xp, as the GTX 1080 Ti and TITAN X were already good enough - if it was using HBM2 and had ridiculous 4K and beyond numbers, then that would be a different story. But 10% gain over GTX 1080 Ti, for $500 more? What.
